What we’ve been up to lately…
Sidewalk Hospitality Aug. 23
Not all women were given the right to vote 100 years ago this year. That’s why it’s even more important than ever that we use this tool to raise ALL our voices! We launched our first Sidewalk Hospitality event for the fall season on August 23 with an outdoor artist talk by artist/attorney Deborah Reid on the roots of disenfranchisement (from a Constitutional Perspective). Ashantae Green, who is running for the Duval Soil and Water Conservation Board, also stopped by to talk about her passion for green living and governing. (All candidates were invited.) Deborah and Ashantae were able to chat with neighbors passing by as well as the artists dropping off their work for the amazing ROOTS Art Show, opening September 26.
Wine, Women, and Words
We actually had a super fun (2) Happy Hours Sunday, April 19, with 24 women collected for our Wine Women and Words virtual event! We each made our mocktail or cocktail at home (with recipes curated by the epicurean Camille, then had the pleasure of hearing the words of 7 women writers while viewing the art of 5 women artists. Then we were gifted by a song by the generous Jessica Pounds. What a joy to be able to retrofit our F2F world as a meaningful online event. With fresh flowers by Down to Earth Farm and the flexibility of our community (including folks zooming in all the way from Brooklyn and Cincinnati!), we were able to properly honor the feminine expression as it blooms here in Jacksonville. “See” you in the fall, somehow, some way, for our next WWW event! Thanks to our artists, writers, and participants!
